Durability Tests of Structural Sandwich


This paper presents the results of tests and a discussion of the behavior of structural sandwiches having facings of plywood, hardboard, cement-asbestos board, aluminum, and procelain enameled, steel-faced hardboard on cores of resin-treated paper honeycomb. The construction and behavior of these sandwiches in a structural unit erected 10 yr ago are discussed. Also presented are results of “accelerated aging” exposures that are of aid in predicting the durability of such constructions
